So often in healthcare, clinicians and patients alike are forced to take extra steps before we get to the right answer or even get the ball rolling in the right direction. I am excited and proud to get the chance to deliver high quality, 1-on-1 care, in the most convenient way for you. As a McKenzie certified physical therapist with a sports oriented background and focus, I will be your best resource for orthopedic injuries, helping you to get back to what you love to do as quickly and effectively as possible. On the more fun side of things, when you want to talk prevention, we can develop a program for the best long term strength and mobility maintenance.
